Hand Lotion

Hand lotion is basically a liniment that softens hands. It is not only used for the cosmetic purposes, but it also protects the skin from irritants and sun. Hand lotion is a boon for people who suffer from hand eczema and contact dermatitis. A hand lotion typically contains three types of ingredients:

  1. Skin conditioning substances as allantoin, panthenol, royal jelly and hydrolyzed silk
  2. Moisture-attracting humectants like NaPCA and hyaluronic acid
  3. Substances that soothe and nurture the skin like Aloe Vera gel

Up till now, innumerable studies have been conducted to deduce the effect of hand lotion on the skin, and all of them have produced the same outcome, that is hand lotion restores skin hydration and eliminates skin roughness. Recurrent hand washing removes all the natural skin oil and leaves the skin dry and rough. If hand lotion is used after each wash, the lost moisture is restored, and all the dryness and roughness disappears.

Although the benefits of hand lotion can’t be denied, but one thing that should be kept in mind is that all hand lotions are not safe for use. A hand lotion that contains ingredients as dimethicone, petrolatum, paraffin, mineral oil and alcohol has the potential to cause over-drying. Remember, a good hand lotion will keep your skin soft and smooth forever.
